Work with Our Team of Self-Help Publishers

While Balboa Press is a self-publishing company, there's no need to rely solely on your own knowledge or skill set when publishing a book. The experience and support provided through Balboa Press gives you everything needed to create and publish your books, plus keep control of the content. 

Our books are printed using print-on-demand technology so we print each book to order. Not only is this method of printing mindful of our planet because no books go to waste, but it is mindful of our authors too. As an author, you are never required to shoulder the cost and hassle of printing, storing and transporting large quantities of your book. When a book is ordered by a reader, a retailer or the author, it is printed and shipped in a matter of days.

Balboa Press authors publish books on a wide range of topics, concentrating in self-help and transformational themes, including the following: astrology, alternative health, angels, pet care, finance, nutrition, parenting, psychology, sociology, meditation, spirituality, numerology, color therapy, feng shui, business, autobiographies, social commentary, memoirs and more.

The Publishing Company Name: Balboa Press

The name Balboa Press was inspired by Balboa Park in San Diego, Calf., a true source of joy for founder Louise Hay (Click to Tweet), as well as all those who visit it. Named after a Spanish conquistador, Vasco Núñez de Balboa, Balboa Park is the largest urban cultural park in the United States and is home to 15 major museums, nine performing arts venues, gardens covering 1,200 acres and the world-renowned San Diego Zoo.

The Balboa name reminds us to continue to look for new and marvelous discoveries in the world around us and within ourselves. Our publishing company is committed to doing just that – helping new talented writers explore and find their own paths, get published, and share their insights.
